Under Michigan and Federal law, a felony conviction will not allow a citizen to possess a firearm. However, MCL §28.424 does allow for the restoration of your rights in Michigan if the Concealed Weapons Licensing Board approves.
 
This can be very misleading because Michigan law allows you to carry a firearm while at the same time federal law does not. It must be noted that getting your rights restored may satisfy state law, but it does not put you in compliance with federal law 18 U.S.C. §922(g), which prohibits anyone ever convicted of a felony to possess a firearm. While chances may be small, you may still be prosecuted for this as a federal crime even though Michigan state law approves.
